Company Culture and Your Brand
Your company culture and brand are closely linked, in fact some would argue that they are one in the same. The way in which your staff articulates and represents itself both in and out of the office is a direct reflection of your company and its offerings.
“It starts with recognizing the importance of culture and making sure everyone at your organization manifests your organizations’ values every day. There is often a difference between bumper sticker slogans and the real values that lie beneath; Value statements are always warm and fuzzy, but a company’s real values are manifested in how it acts, not how it claims it acts. And, at the end of the day, the culture is nothing more than a collection of values, and those values dictate how employees will behave. If you’re not intentional about your culture from the very start, it can quickly become a major liability instead of an asset.” (Sharon Florentine, cio.com)
